Who Belongs to Phi Beta Kappa?
Seventeen U.S. Presidents, thirty-eight U.S. Supreme Court Justices, and one hundred and thirty-six Nobel laureates can be counted among the ranks of Phi Beta Kappa members. Famous or not, all of our members have one thing in common — the pursuit of excellence.
Phi Beta Kappa at Wabash College
Our chapter at Wabash College was chartered in 1898, the 42nd chapter of the society and the second in the state of Indiana. Over the past century, some 1,300 men have been inducted to Phi Beta Kappa at Wabash. As an early founding chapter, we have the honor of electing up to 1/8 of the graduating seniors whose grade averages are the highest. The requirements for election to Phi Beta Kappa at Wabash College are determined by the by-laws of the Wabash Chapter, which consists of Phi Beta Kappa members of the College faculty and staff.
